The GHC, based in Massachusetts, USA, is dedicated to ensuring that every patient worldwide receives access to quality health care. By identifying key opportunities for collaboration, GHC and GCR are set to make significant progress in global health. Wil Ngwa, Global Health Catalyst Founding Director, and Professor of Global Health & Radiation Oncology, said:

Therese Lindé said:

“The GHC Summit was as usual a very interesting, inspiring and productive forum, bringing parties from across the world together to share experiences on how to catalyst progress in cancer care. It was an honor to represent the GCR officially signing the MOU with the GHC. The GCR contributes with the radiotherapy piece to the wider platform of GHC, as we both work to enhance access to cancer care to patients globally.”

Through joining forces, GCR and GHC will focus on several key initiatives, including:

  • Increasing access to high-quality, equitable cancer care education

  • Supporting knowledge-sharing initiatives across healthcare organizations and oncology professionals

  • Developing and maintaining communications between partners and stakeholders

GCR is excited for the opportunity to collaborate with GHC in addressing the needs of cancer patients worldwide. We look forward to sharing valuable ideas and information that have the potential to save lives.
